start on A Christmas Heart

I picked up the needle a bit this evening while ironically watching a movie, A Christmas Carol, which came on Lifetime TV Holiday movie series and it made the stitchy phrase in this sampler even more special.

28 ct Cashel Sand linen
with Limited Edition Crescent Colors Christmas threads

I had the Christmas Threads, limited ed. in my stash and I thought these two shades compliment each other well. They are not labeled on the tag so I can only describe that the red is almost like a Williamsburg Red, and the green is more of a Blue Spruce. The linen is a remnant from another sampler and fits almost too good, as I'm hoping it fits well enough, but definitely a tight fit on the sides.

I did so enjoy getting to watch the movie from beginning to end.

There's a place called home
I can almost see, with a red front door, and
A roaring fire, and a Christmas tree.

~~~from C. Dickens, A Christmas Carol


  1. Your sampler will be so pretty. The limited edition threads are lovely.

  2. I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!! I have been busy, too, with needle in hand working on one of your designs. Thank you, again, for sharing your beautiful designs. :)

    God bless you - Julie

  3. Dearest Jennifer,

    What a lovely sampler you cross stitched in 2008! Perfect and the frame is so fittingly for the work.
    Enjoy this season of cozy indoor activity and wishing you warmth and love,


  4. I am still stitching on Christmas ornament gifts. Then I need to "finish" them all. Haven't caught any Christmas programming yet. Glad you are able to relax and stitch away.

  5. I love this design! I may not get to it this year but I have it printed out and ready to stitch up for next year!
